Very Flawed Product

nwflyer, Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: I've been flying Microsoft Flight Simulator since the first version. And, I'm a retired airline pilot, having flown real airplanes for almost sixty years. It's installed with Acceleration on a new Windows 8.1 desktop. The program is constantly aborting for no good reason. Some of the aborting is caused by trying to save flights. I have found no documentation as to why it aborts. I fly all the advanced aircraft with the most realistic settings, using the virtual cockpit.

Microsoft Flight Simulator X Gold Edition

Fred C. Atwood, Amazon
12 March 2014
  • Summary: Just thought that Amazon should know that Microsoft no longer gives help or support for Microsoft Flight Simulator X Gold Edition which I bought from Amazon about a week ago. I was informed of this by a Microsoft technician while attempting to get Microsoft Flight Simulator to function properly in my new computer with Windows 8.1.

False Advertisement

bandlt, Ebay
8 February 2014
  • Summary: Flight Simulator X is falsely advertised as being capable of being operated online with other people, it also advertises that you can work in the tower for air control which would only be available online, but since you are unable to go online in the game, that is Microsoft's false advertising propaganda as well.

So much promised, but so many problems - very disappointing!

Robert Allred, Amazon
21 December 2013
  • Summary: No one should sell, or buy this product expecting it to be a current, functional and supported simulation! As a former pilot, I hoped Flight Simulator X Gold Edition would bring back some of they experiences I enjoyed so much as a private pilot. Certainly the hype lead me to expect that it would. But, after installation, and some pretty graphics, I began to experience many unexpected and unwelcome problems.

Don't rely on phony reviews!

Melvin H. Chapman "Mel Chapman", Amazon
22 October 2013
  • Summary: JUST RECEIVED MS FS X AND IT IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS 7 64 BIT PREMIUM HOME EDITION! I tried all the compatibility settings from Windows 98 thru VISTA + service packs. MSFS X is designed for older Operating Systems and will not function correctly in my Windows 7 Home Premium and High Performance CyberpowerPC. The glowing reviews of this program running in Windows 7 64 are either total BS or else the reviewers have a white cane and a service dog.

Don't buy it

bobmagic, Ebay
11 August 2013
  • Summary: Terrible Flight Sim. The worst Microsoft has ever offered. Microsoft has designed the graphics so there are no third party scenery designers and what you see is what you get. That is not enough. The 3D cockpit panels suck too.. I give this one a 2 out of 10 and apparently Microsoft agrees with me because they have not offered a new flight sim in five years. DON'T BUY THIS ONE. IT IS A WASTE OF MONEY!!!!

FSX is junk

jtvangogh, Ebay
10 February 2011
  • Summary: I have used FS2004 for several years and was ready for an upgrade - I have a very nice computer with plenty of firepower and a great graphics card. Loading up FSX was slow to say the least but that is not the biggest problem with this program - it is absolutely the worst gaming program I have ever seen! Thank goodness I only paid 30.00 for this on Ebay.

Beware

Amazon
17 January 2009
  • Summary: The graphics are awesome. The simulation is great. Lots of fun. You get all that....if it works. Beware, if you do not have a stable, up-to-date, top of the line system, it will not work. If you have a computer over 1 year old running XP or Vista, it is most likely will not be stable. If you cannot or do not do windows updates, you are not current. All your drivers, video/audio cards need to be current. Your video card needs to be at least 256 Mb, 512 Mb is best.
